As a result of immigration from Asia since the passage of the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act, the fastest-growing religions in America -faster than all Christian groups combined -are Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. How have these new faiths changed or been changed by the pluralist face of American civil society? How have these new religious minorities been affected by the deep-rooted American ambivalence toward foreign traditions? Bruce Lawrence casts a comparativist eye on the American religious scene and explores the ways in which the experiences of various groups of Asian immigrants have been similar to and different from one another, and from those of Native, African, and Hispanic Americans.
